Music, Movies, and Books

Hard to say as there is so much out there. I am not a fan of country / folk music... I love acoustic sounds. I listen to film scores. I love reggae, drum and bass, electro, rap, hip hop, pop ... depends on the mood /situation I guess :)

I love all films, good and bad... you learn from the bad and you get inspired by the good.

Reading is one thing I need to do more of... shame I haven´t taken the time to do so.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Surfing in Mexico, partying in Mexico City
Discovering the crazy side of Berlin - techno underground scene
Snorkelling in the Caribbean, playing with stingrays and sharks
Snowboarding in Austria and Switzerland
Lived in Paradise - Cayman Islands and the Bahamas
Hitch-hiked from France to Portugal and back.
Biked across France from Switzerland - 100km on the first day over a mountain - felt that for the rest of the week ^^ - no plan, just ride
Meeting people from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds - don´t judge a book by its cover!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can make you the best Guacamole and teach you how to make real Mexican Ceviche. I can teach you a bit about film editing (learning myself), I can teach you how to ride a snowboard properly, I can tell you what you need to do / see in Berlin and Zürich / Switzerland, Cayman Islands, Bahamas.

I want to learn to fish, to ride a motorbike, I want to learn more about sustainable living and gardening, I want to design and create / upcycle my own furniture. I want to learn how to paint and make old ugly things pretty again :)

I would love to learn how to restore an old car :)

Stories, laughs and a bottle of wine :)
